Christmas message from Marle Roberts

Dear friends,

On behalf of the Alberta Division of the Canadian Union of Public Employees, I’d like to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday season.

To our 35,000 members and to all Albertans – I hope the holidays allow time for family, friends, rest and relaxation.

As is tradition – I hope you will find time to reach out to those with less and provide a helping hand.  A donation to a charity of your choice, a few hours of volunteer time, or even a kind word or deed can do a lot towards making our communities stronger and better places to live.

2015 has been a busy and historic year for our province and our union.  Come January, we will return to the hard work of representing our members in our workplaces, and building a province where everyone shares in peace and prosperity.  Until then, have a safe and happy holiday.


Marle Roberts, President CUPE Alberta
